Topic: the last of my Haile Selassie Sidamo DP from Sweet (4 msgs / 220 lines)
1) From: mary deem
Well I finally broke down and roasted the last of my Haile Selassie Sidamo
DP.  This is not only one of my favorite Ethiopians but my first
introduction to African coffees when I first got into roasting (last
December).  In fact it was literally about the third coffee I had ever
roasted.
I will never forget the first taste of that wonderful mélange of wine,
apricots, honeysuckly, and Vanilla (with a little Earl Grey) tea.  The
flavor profile just blew me away.  I had never tasted coffee like this -
literally!
Now, having roasted many more coffees...some with even more exotic flavor
profiles...I am still amazed by the Haile Selassie Sidamo DP.  If I ever get
bored with this coffee it is because I am bored with life itself.
I roasted this to City in my modified WB Poppery I for 9:15 minutes, hit
first crack at 7:15 min.  Wine, apricots, honey suckle, and that mixture of
vanilla and Earl Grey tea.  Close my eyes and I am back in the kitchen that
mid December night...tasting this for the first time.  In awe that I could
actaully roast...and even more in awe of the beans themselves.
A sincere thanks to everyone at Sweet Marie's for finding such treasures as
this.

Here here!  Thank you Sweet Marias.
I am in the same situation, finishing my last batch of a Sidamo from last
Fall.  My senses were opened to berry fruity flavors for the first time on
this bean last November.  I just roasted my last batch about 10 days ago.
Unfortunately, or so I thought, my roast on the Behmor stopped in the middle
of 1st crack.  I thought "Oh, great, I've probably ruined this and will get
grassy coffee".  (I wanted to go about 30 more seconds).  Anyways, I let it
rest about 5 days, the beans look light, but the berry wine flavors are just
singing.  I made an espresso out of it, and that proved to be a bit much for
my palate.  But the drip coffee is fantastic.  I hope the Sidamo Maduro
follows a similar path.

I'm about to order my second 60 lb sack of the Maduro. You'll like it. The =
fruit is "riper" than the Haile Selassie. A very very light roast of the Ma=
duro, with a few days rest after, seems similar to a slightly longer roaste=
d HS..as best as I can remember the HS, it's been a few months since I ran =
out of that.
